Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
In the aftermath of her multiplatinum success with 1991's groundbreaking Unforgettable, it's easy to forget that Natalie Cole played a pivotal role as a consistent pop and R&B hitmaker from 1975 to 1981. Her first work for Capitol Records reflected the influence of Aretha Franklin more so than Natalie's famous father (Nat "King" Cole), who ironically made his own first recordings for the L.A.-based label. Produced by the team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy, former members of early-'70s R&B group the Independents, Cole exploded onto the music scene with immediate hits like "This Will Be," "Sophisticated Lady," and "Inseperable" (the title track for the first of six successive bestselling albums for Capitol). This particular compilation wisely includes not only Cole's biggest recordings of the '70s, such as "Our Love," "I've Got Love on My Mind," and "Mr. Melody," but also features classic album cuts like "I'm Catching Hell" and "I Can't Say No," both firm favorites of longtime Cole fans. --David Nathan

CD Reviews

Classic soul from a superb artist!
Jazysol79 | Germantown, MD USA | 12/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What can I say? Natalie Cole is on point, no matter what she sings. This is the REAL stuff. Unforgettable and all of that was okay, but this music moves you. From the jubilant melody of "This Will Be," to the funky groove of "Sophisticated Lady (She's a Different Lady)," to the heartfelt delivery of "I've Got Love on My Mind," this CD serves as a reminder that Natalie definitely HAS SOUL. No question. I can remember my mom singing all of these songs when I was little. Though her original studio albums are the real deal, this is a fine intro to the genius and style of Natalie Cole."

"this is a great disc.so many great songs and her voice is so soulful.this will be,i got love on my mind,etc... she can do so many kinds and types of styles.she is underrated to me.cuz with the talent she has she should be getting far more love. her father set high standards and she sets some on this opus and on other releases."
Fine for the casual fan

"If you like this you should check out "Anthology." Everything here is there except for the Peabo Bryson duet, along with lesser-known material that won't disappoint you if you like what you hear on this.

Funny how most of those reviewing Anthology, which has 31 tracks, mention more missing tracks than the people reviewing this, which has 15. Still, this includes all the big hits most people will want or need from Ms. Cole's years on Capitol."
